The Q&A Archives: Self Sowing Ornamentals

Question: What flowering plants self-sow?

Answer: Many annual flowers will self-sow, especially wildflowers. In my experience, coreopsis, bachelor button, calendula, marigold, Johnny-jump-ups, cosmos, gaillardia, black-eyed Susan, hollyhocks, forget-me-not, four-o'clocks, nasturium and poppies self-sow fairly easily.
